Subject[PATCH] drm/omap: panel-dsi-cm: Remove deprecated create_singlethread_workqueue
The workqueue "workqueue" has only a single workitem(&ddata->ulps_work) per
panel_drv_data and hence doesn't require ordering.
Also, it is not being used on a memory reclaim path. Hence, the
singlethreaded workqueue has been replaced with the use of system_wq.

System workqueues have been able to handle high level of concurrency
for a long time now and hence it's not required to have a singlethreaded
workqueue just to gain concurrency. Unlike a dedicated per-cpu workqueue
created with create_singlethread_workqueue(), system_wq allows multiple
work items to overlap executions even on the same CPU; however, a
per-cpu workqueue doesn't have any CPU locality or global ordering
guarantee unless the target CPU is explicitly specified and thus the
increase of local concurrency shouldn't make any difference.

Occurrences of the label err_bl have also been removed because with the
usage of system_wq, calls to destroy_workqueue() have been dropped,
which makes the label unnecessary.

Workitem is sync cancelled in dsicm_cancel_ulps_work() which is called
in dsicm_remove() to ensure that there are no workitems pending when the
driver is disconnected.
